Vision Care Technology

Coming fall 2022 to Diamond Oaks!

Three out of four people in the U.S. wear glasses or contacts to correct their vision, according to the Vision Impact Institute. The World Health Organization calls vision health a global priority.

You can be part of the solution!  Learn about common reasons why people typically wear glasses or contacts (refractive errors) and common eye disorders (abnormal anatomical conditions requiring medical or surgical treatment); how to test for visual acuity, depth perception, and color blindness; proper use of optical instruments for prescription analysis and fitting technologies for glasses and contact lenses; and proper use of diagnostic testing and ophthalmic imaging devices.

Work with the latest eye care equipment and prepare for a career in an optical lab or optical shop, or as a technician in an optometrist or ophthalmologist’s office.
